Best iPhone app of the year is Google Maps no doubt.

But Apple is just too embarrassed to admit.

Why draw attention to your failure? Apple will never admit they failed and had to beg Google to rescue them.

google maps were released yesterday.........and those 4 apps/games apps are too good, especially the action movie fx
plus, google maps were always there on the iphone, the new app just bought a few extra features(all the features that google provides on the android version, but a google employee claims that its better than the android version, but both the apps are basically the same)

Your telling me action movie fx is better than google maps? .. The difference was that it was a native app so does not apply and those "extra features" are a huge improvement on what was there before and even apple maps. Especially since it can actually get you where you want to go. It was too late to be in the running but by far the best app of the year in ios.

google maps is not a 2012 app......it was available from 2012, that's what i am trying to say
even here maps is there in the app store, there were many good maps from the other brands as well
and even the google search with google now like features was really good
but these two things are replacements for siri and older google maps.....action movie fx is something that is much different from all this basic stuff, it can do things that seem to be impossible with any phone/tablet

Bottom line and end of discussion its the first time google maps in its true form as we experience it was finally released as an app in IOS. You can't compare that with an app that let you put explosions and stupid fx in your homemade videos so you can upload more stuff that no one wants to see to facebook and youtube. There is absolutely no comparison.

Even google said that the google maps app on iOS is better tha. The one on android......maybe it would be the best app of 2013....let action movie fx take the crown for This year.......it's still the best app in its category
